THIS IS A PREMIUM SHOW
Aparna Nancherla is delighted you are here. She’s a comedian of the stand-up variety, but can often be
seen sitting. She recently worked as a writer and performer for Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC. You
can also catch her on the current season of Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central and on the
upcoming season of Judd Apatow’s Love on Netflix.
Other credits include writer and performer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and appearances on
Conan, Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, @midnight, Adam Devine’s House Party, Last Comic Standing,
and Night Train with Wyatt Cenac. She has also done videos for Above Average, Refinery29, Funny or
Die, Slate V, and MTV Other.
Aparna has accumulated a list of ‘top comedian’ lists and awards including: Variety’s “Top Ten Comics to
Watch 2016,” Shorty Nomination for “Best Comedian on Social Media 2016,” Vulture’s “50 Comedians
You Should Know in 2015,” Marie Claire’s “Funniest Women of 2015,” Time Magazine’s “140 Top
Tweeters of 2014,” Jezebel’s “Comedy Queens of 2014,” Time Out NY’s “10 Funniest Women in New
York,” Flavorpill’s “11 Essential Young Comedians in New York City,” LA Weekly’s “12 Comedy Acts to
Watch” and Serial Optimist’s “10 Comics You Must Know.”
Nate Abshire started performing to spite a girl who wouldn't return his calls, and he never looked back. Audiences love his sardonic wit, keen writing, and playful stage presence. Based in Minneapolis, he performs in clubs throughout the Twin Cities and the greater Midwest. The girl still won't return his calls.
Geoffrey Asmus started comedy in 2013 right after graduating college in order to negate six years of studying Religious Studies and History. In a short time Geoffrey won Comedy on State’s “Madison's Funniest Comedian 2015” and Penguin Comedy Club’s “Funniest Person in Iowa 2015,” beating out the guy who invented meth both times.
Shortly thereafter Geoffrey was selected for the ‘New Faces’ showcase at the 2016 Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal and seen by four people on Fox TV’s ‘Laughs.’ He has also been featured at the Bridgetown, Limestone and Boston comedy festivals and has opened for Brian Posehn, Todd Barry, Daniel Sloss and Andrew Santino among others.
Onstage and offstage Geoffrey will not make eye contact, which is a blessing for all.
